Most Favorable Review

Great inexpensive motherboard

GIGABYTE B460M DS3H LGA 1200 Intel B460 Micro-ATX Motherboard with M.2, SATA 6Gb/s, USB 3.2 Gen 1
GIGABYTE B460M DS3H LGA 1200 Intel B460 Micro-ATX Motherboard with M.2, SATA 6Gb/s, USB 3.2 Gen 1

Pros: Easy to use, good features including RAID, HDMI, DVI and VGA connections. Also has 4 RAM slots, the H410 boards I looked at only had 2.

Cons: I would have preferred a full ATX board but that being said I knew what I was buying and it works great

Overall Review: Great budget board, has better features then the H410 chipset, highly recommend

Great product

Overall Review: Works as described, inexpensive, and even though it came from China still shipped quite quickly

Easy to install and good WiFi coverage

TP-Link Omada N300 Gigabit Wireless Outdoor Access Point | Passive PoE Powered w/ PoE Injector included | SDN Integrated | Cloud Access & Omada app for Easy Management (EAP110-Outdoor)
TP-Link Omada N300 Gigabit Wireless Outdoor Access Point | Passive PoE Powered w/ PoE Injector included | SDN Integrated | Cloud Access & Omada app for Easy Management (EAP110-Outdoor)

Pros: Good WiFi coverage, amazing price, PoE adapter included, has the ability to create multiple network including guest networks complete with a portal site, and easy to setup.

Cons: Only has a 100Mbps ethernet port so the advertised 300Mbps is only possible between WiFi clients. I can get about 150 feet, not quite the advertised distance.

Overall Review: I knew it had a 100Mbps port when I ordered and I didnt expect to get the advertised distance sure to obstructions so overall I am quite happy. Great price and options, I can not get WiFi in my detached garage that is just over 100ft away. I had better speed by leaving it in b/g/n mode, n only ran slower for some reason.

Didn’t know you could install Windows 10 in 15~20 mins

Pros: Fast, bought it on sale so very inexpensive, easy to install and runs cool.

Cons: Would have liked the one with the heat sink for looks purposes but I couldn’t really justify extra money for a heat sink that doesn’t really do anything. The one with the heat sink wasn’t on sale.

Overall Review: I have mostly older computers in my house, I was amazed at the speed of this drive, I haven’t installed any version of Windows as fast as I put Windows 10 on this drive. Boot time, installation of software, checking for updates etc. Considering I ordered a low end i3 from Newegg to go with this, I can only imagine how it would be with an i7 or i9.

Looks good and works

Overall Review: No complaints, was relatively inexpensive and runs and looks great
